“Good place to stay”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Perfect accomodation, in a very good location. Clean and well maintained, Marion makes you very welcome with some nice touches as cake, biscuits, bread and milk there for you on arrival.
Even a lovely vase of red roses in the lounge.

Having just returned from a three night break to the ivy apartments I can only say what a great place to stay , so glad we found it , I was travelling with my daughter and 9 month old grandaughter, so wanted somewhere that was exceptionally clean and could not have found better , the apartments are ideally located , Marion and Keith go out of their way to make you feel welcome , they provided a travel cot and high chair , that was spotless, we were treated on arrival with , scones , sparkling juice , sweets and butter and milk , how thoughtful , nothing is to much trouble , there is a lovely patio you can sit out and eat and drink and take in the quiet and lovely garden , the bed rooms are lovely and the beds very comfy , would definitely recommend the ivy apartments, and will definitely be going back

This is the kind of place you are tempted to keep secret! However, we must highly recommend this beautiful apartment. It is so spacious, comfortable and peaceful, and only 10 mins from the shops or cliff path. We really appreciated the warm welcome, special treats and care for our comfort from our wonderful hosts, Marion and Keith. We hope to return in the near future.

“Perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 11 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The apartment was absolutely perfect. Well equipped, exceptionally clean and perfectly placed for looking around Shanklin and the rest of the island. Marion and Keith were very lovely hosts and left us beautiful scones on arrival:-) Also, they were kind enough to provide us with a travel cot and high chair which was so helpful - big thank you and we will definitely be back soon!

A newly rebuilt/refurbished holiday apartment. Very nicely done. One of two at the back of a large Georgian/Victorian house overlooking the garden. Comfortable and peaceful spot. Short 5 min walk to the sea cliff top path. Hosts live above in the main house and are very freindly and welcoming.

“Superb stay”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Myself and my partner have just returned from a short stay in the 2 Bedroom Apartment. The owners were extremely welcoming and left us fresh flowers, goodies and there were lots of little things to make the stay easier. The layout of the apartment is very good and the bi-folding doors leading to the patio area makes it extra special. Free wi-fi was also a bonus. The apartment was spotlessly clean. We really couldn't fault the apartment at all and will certainly return here again.

Marion and Keith are lovely hosts, leaving flowers and treats in the apartment for us. The apartment is ideal for both adults and children and is situated on the ground floor. It has modern utilities within an attractive period house.
We all very much enjoyed our stay and would like to thank Marion and Keith for making us feel so welcome.
